With the Thunderbirds, everybody in the band has to cover a lot of bases musically. They’ve got to be able to play rock and roll. They’ve got to be able to play R&B and soul. They’ve got to be able to play blues. And they have to be able to do it in their own voice. With the Thunderbirds there is so much different Americana going on … and maybe a lot of different blending of music, as in Blues and R&B. – Kim

Being a musician is all about leaving a legacy. And that’s not about money. That’s about music. If you can’t leave a musical legacy, if you can’t be remembered for what you did, there’s no sense in doing it. It’s not just about making a hit right now, making a few dollars right now, make a lot of dollars right now. It’s about people leaving a stamp that a lot of people are going to remember. – Kim
You know, you can have a lot of potential and you could be thrilling people at a young age. But as you get older, and if you’re really singing it up, you can really turn it on as you get older, because experience means so much.
I’m just saying that because I am older. – Kim
